…are dogs allowed off-leash on the trail to Crater Lake & can pups swim in Crater Lake?

Dogs are required to be leashed in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness. Crater Lake is within that wilderness. Here’s a list of regulations from the Forest Service – https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/whiteriver/recarea/?recid=81118

Question – we want to visit next week. How far is it from the parking lot to the shuttle drop off for Maroon Lake? Is it necessary to buy a shuttle pass? Thank you.

Maroon Creek Road is a little over 9 miles. You can bike it, but a shuttle pass is required for the bus that leaves from Aspen Highlands parking lot. For Maroon Bells shuttle reservation questions, please call 970-930-6442 or email info@visitmaroonbells.com

There is a Google map near the bottom of the page that shows where the trailhead starts. The trail is located near the Maroon Bells Scenic Area. In the summer it can be accessed via bus (https://www.aspensnowmass.com/plan-your-stay/maroon-bells/getting-here). In winter, the road (Maroon Creek Road – https://www.aspentrailfinder.com/maroon-creek-road/) is closed to cars, but the Maroon Bells Scenic Area can still be visited.
